what do I write? Fiction: magical realism and absurdism as seen in my first book: The King of FU. Non-fiction: relationships, addiction, sex, travel, politics, Russian culture and anything that pays in money or laughs (mostly).

what is my writing like? Like a bunch of people at a party trying to tell different jokes at the same time. (Latest: That Time I Got Illegal Butt Surgery in Russia (Human Parts)

why do I write? Because cats can’t. Or some such other pretentious nonsense I’ll come up with later.
